Antonio Brown might be the best receiver in the NFL. There is no doubting his production since he has been in the league. Only two of his nine seasons has not included a 1,000+ yard performance from him. He is a very hard worker as well. Seems like the perfect match for any team.
But this year has been such a problem for him off the field. He was suspended from the last game of the season because he skipped getting an MRI. He was mad he wasn’t voted the team MVP, so he skipped the MRI. Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger got in shouting matches with him in practice.
And those are just the incidents with the team this year. He also was found guilty of driving 100+ mph on a busy Pittsburgh street. He is being investigated for a domestic dispute as well. Last year, he was fined for filming a Facebook Live post in the locker room after a game.
Brown also has a large cap hit with his contract. He makes $17 million a year and is under contract until 2022. He is also 31 years old, an age where production typically declines for receivers. It would be a big risk for any team to take him on.
The Colts would be the most dangerous offense in the league if they traded for him though. With him opposite of Hilton, the team would be almost unstoppable. They could score 30 points per game easily. But is that worth all of the potential risk?
It will be interesting to see if the Colts end up taking on any of these players. If they were smart, they would seriously consider it.
